In my last question, I attempted to avoid any answer saying that one political party was more likely to abuse snarl words without proof as I deemed such an attack plausible and unconstructive to my question if I didn't exclude it. That led to...debate over my attempt to avoid such a detour and accusation of supposed bias on my part. I'm all for open debate and if people want to make such a detour I'll go along with it — so long as it's backed by science and statistics!
So now I'm asking for any evidence as to whether either side of the US political spectrum makes heavier use of snarl words than the other. I am not asking for opinion, I'm asking for evidence. Ideally, that would be a peer-reviewed study with a sufficiently large sample size. I'm willing to be a little lenient with what I would accept since "snarl words" are hard to define, which may make a perfect study difficult to find; I'd rather have some sort of answer to no answer at all. Still, my final selection will be based on which answer came closest to answering which, if any, side of the political spectrum makes more use of snarl words in their rhetoric and which I felt had the most statistically sound evidence of their claim.
I'm going to request no pure opinion or "that's just obvious" answers or comments if they are not backed by some form of evidence. Links or it didn't happen. ;)
I'd accept research specifically on Republicans/Democrats or more generally on "left-" or "right-leaning" sources.
For my own two cents, I'll throw in one study that concluded Democratic presidents used snarl words more in 2000 & 2004, but Republicans rallied with a huge reliance on them in 2008. Since it's only looking at presidential debates and only the three years, I deem it rather limited evidence by itself to draw much of a conclusion, but it's at least a starting point.
